Take a Bread Baking Workshop with Your Kiddo
This class is intended for one child (ages 8-14), and one adult. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in my kitchen in this hands on Family Day – Kids Bread Workshop. Each adult and child will make a batch of white dough – which will be divided and baked into a loaf and six buns. Working together, we will then work through making the perfect burger buns, and a brown sandwich loaf. I firmly believe there is nothing better than sitting around a table and eating together, once the baking is done, we will sit down to enjoy a meal with a glass of wine (for the adult!), and a glass of homemade lemonade (for the child!).
